still with us? are you still with us? they were not sure -- these guys will tell you here, they were not sure who was what, where was where, in our situation. i would say -- i would not say they forgot about us, but there were times that we felt like we were forgotten about, because they blew us east of the airport, probably 60 miles before they turned us back -- flew us east of the airport, and all the time asking, are you still with us? it was just total mass confusion all over. >> i wanted to thank the four of you for your actions that day and what you continue to do for us. i question is for the commercial pilot. i was wondering how you decided to tell the passengers what was going on. did you consider lying to them? [laughter] a small bump in the aircraft, you know. >> that would be a hard-line to cover up. the best policy was just to be honest with them. they are all in a life-and-death situation, and had every right to know that. the moment that i knew that everyone's life was somewhat in danger and at risk, i let them know. i tell them, as far as i know, we are at work. >> i
>> good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us. it is my pleasure to be here with our regional fta administrator and our commissioner from san francisco who sits on the metropolitan transportation commission. we have a new development in terms of the muni metro system, one of which is the beginning of the card installation system. we have nine stations that will be receiving newgate's. and we will be adding another 19 disabled fare gates. what we are attempting to do here is replace the infrastructure that has well tapped is useful life in terms of our fair gates, and we are cobbling that at the same time with a nuclear program, which you all should be aware of and which is the regional smart card that will be used throughout the area for public transit trips in the region. the new ticket vending machines -- we have purchased 40 of those ticket vending machines. customers should be able to go to any metro station and purchase tickets that can be used on all of the systems in the metro region. they are multi-lingual machines. they speak in english as well as spanish and
the ultimate sacrifice for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and all the infrastructure that was here. because of this transfer, the ame
. it was stitched together by dozens of americans who simply wanted those of us who survived the attack on his building to note that day, our fellow citizens, would always remember those who did not. on that quilt are written these words by a little girl, "in our hearts, we weep for you. in our minds, we honor you." today, her words still comfort us, because today, we still weak for those we lost here and in new york -- weep for those we lost here, in new york, and in somerset county. we honor them with our presence and certainly with this memorial. mostly, we honor them with our lives, with what we have done from that day to this, the sacrifices we have borne, the laughter we have shared, the hope we have dared to let back into our hearts. unspeakable carnage was visited upon us here, but it did not conquer us. unimaginable loss was felled by a us here, but it does not diminish -- felt by us here, but it does not diminish us. what lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies inside of you. let us weep for what lies behind us. let us honor what lies in front o
fewer cars than last year, which gives us more of an ability to protect the trees and tree roots and other things like this. the promoters have been working with us on a code of conduct that we will be actively promulgating out to the participants about driving, picnicking, to help make certain that there is full thoughtfulness on the use of the metal. and they have been wonderful about this. the permits for this are $9,000 for the facility, and last year, this was 6300. this is the final year of the three-year phasing so this will go to 9000. and there is a leap -- remediation fee, dedicated to the metal. this will go into the fund for all the things that we can do to help that metal, specifically. the park patrol may remain the same at 1950. this is because there is some discussion about having the part do more and the police to a little bit less. and at their request, the date of the cars were moved to 1980 and older, as opposed to 1972. younger people kind of -- they want to reach out to the younger people and they had vehicles that are not as old. in the event of rainfall or
have a strong and salsa-type music following. so a lot of us came down here in san francisco to joey's specifically on sunday's. so i know as far as all my companions from sacramento that we really enjoy jelly's. and we'll certainly regret it. all of us have felt safe at joey's, it advocated a clean, healthy, fun environment. i'm not aware of the details. i don't believe this is something that was due to joey's and their way of operation. i'd like to express my support for continuation of joey's. thank you. >> for public comment -- >> good morning. i'd like to speak about the waterfront land use plant study. >> this is situation is intolerable. to break up a club and put up a tower, which is against the waterfront plan use specifications that they should connect the land to the bay is crazy. they speak out of two sides of their mouth. that's called corruption. this is not about money and greed. hundreds of car garages is wrong. it's an already difficult situation we have now, so how could you approve a plan like this? it's ridiculous. all we can think of is what's behind all this. an
with the schools. hopefully, it would give us some resources. also, it gives us an opportunity to integrate into the other strategies of school improvement we are developing, so i am very supportive of this and hopefully will be following through. >> i want to make decisions i think will help as well. we're having a tendency part of the questions that are asked when it comes to any of the reporting that is happening, so they are asking questions about attendance and when parents are engaged, they are also being asked about attendance. often one student will cut five departments, and we have been working collaborative lay -- collaborative flav -- collaboratively around shared data. you have a more collaborative association. if there is the case across the board that reaches all of the departments with one person reporting, we are hoping this is going to help with that. the last point is we want to set a goal for ourselves, and we are not only looking at how we reduce truancy but how we move students who have been chronically absent and moving them to 20 days. that really makes a difference.

have done a tremendous amount of work here in the community. tell us about your background jean >> chef well, i have been working as a community activist for a long time. i first got into it after the 1991 fire in the oakland hills it was terrible. such a need for so many volunteers and so forth. so i took a position with city of oakland to assist in the rebuilding process. as a result of that i got introduced to the group of people that were working on an enterprise grant, $25 million with the clinton administration we were able to bring to the city of oakland to do economic revitalization. i went on there to do arbitration and retiring from the city. >> i remember you from the interfaith community to meet mayor we met for over a year. >> prior to his election i formed network santa fe action, group of pastors of all denominations we did good work getting him elected mayor of city of oakland. that is how i first met you and introduced me to so many hundreds and hundreds of other pastors throughout the city of oakland and bay area that lead to the work i am doing today as a result of th
by -- >>> welcome. it's good to have you with us. as the country observes the ninth anniversary of the september 11th terrorist attacks, there's been an extraordinary national conversation about the challenges of religious diversity and the boundaries of tolerance. there were protests and condemnations from around the world over a small independent florida church's threatened plan to burn the koran. secretary of state hillary clinton called the plan disrespectful and disgraceful. and general david petraeus, the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan and defense secretary robert gates said the act could endanger american troops. the debate came on top of another controversy over plans to build an islamic cultural center near the site of ground zero in new york. at a news conference on friday, president obama called for religious tolerance. >> we have to make sure that we don't start turning on each other, and i will do everything that i can as long as i'm president of the united states to remind the american people that we are one nation under god and we may call that god different names. but we
it was barbara boxer that brought us over the edge. guys, this is a legitimate stimulus project. this is a legitimate shot already project that would not have taken place a year ahead of schedule. it saved the taxpayers $90 million. that was for the leadership of speaker policy and president obama. 6200 jobs will be created over the course of this project, direct and indirect. 2600 direct jobs. you're seeing the hard hats and some of those folks. not just pictures. they are here physically with us. their lives have been enhanced because of the stimulus project. it was noted $100 million or more with the tiger grant got us a year ahead of schedule. in 2013 this will be done. what an extraordinary thing. this is right around the corner. this is real time construction and real leadership. thank you, speaker policy. thank you, barbara boxer. thank you, senator feinstein. thank you to jake mgoldrick. we had regional projects related to work on celebrity -- collectively together. he helped organize a from work with the golden gate bridge district and other leaders throughout the regio
adults in the community to access and download and then use for community outreach purposes a whole range of materials to help get the word out in a consistent way about prevention and treatment options related to teen prescription drug abuse. as medication use becomes more prevalent in our society for all ages, so too becomes the need to improve the communication about those medicines between the clinicians-the doctors, the pharmacists, other prescribers-and the patient and their support network. samhsa's been a tremendous resource support to ncpie. they've provided resources and also the intellectual information and data that have enabled ncpie to develop resource materials, such as our "teen influencer" program, materials that are available for the community and for teens and parents. ncpie makes sure that it embeds in all its messages and materials information for the general public, for adults and teens about where they can seek out treatment information, including, for example, samhsa's hotline and their "treatment locator." all the wonderful resources that we have, whether th
in the investigation and recovery efforts are with us in the audience today. for the first responders, around -- a round of applause. [applause] this is also the place where the media gave the nation and the world their first glimpse of the crash site. this is the place where a community in nation came together, the red cross and salvation army and good samaritans demonstrated great compassion and care here. local residents of this community and county opened their home andeart to the families and to the nation. a small memorial of pay bills was placed at the overlook where families could leave -- of hay bales was placed at the overlook where families could leave flowers and other items. still adding we're to that simple memorial. the nation in the world have joined the salute. you will hear from distinguished speakers today. i want to impart with you the confidence that the department of the interior, in our capacity as to words of national parks and historic sites for our great nation, is committed to building this memorl. because of the work here, we're on our way, with the friends and fam
university. this is in the middle of the avenue. this moves us into the stock that would provide greater access for the residents of the park and greater safety for all of the user's including san francisco state. this would create a very important linkage that is missing in our transportation system in this side of the city. there are other advantages not only providing for stops that you can get off the new system but also the opportunities to create a landscaped front door to the city right here on 19th avenue. we also will be providing a zero to low emissions shuttle bus that will provide access from this unique and the bus stops that we are providing at the northern edge directly to the daily city parks station. this connects directly to the part. this is a very important linkage. in the interim, we will be using the same shuttle best -- shuttle bus. as was mentioned, this is a long-term project which took approximately 20 years to complete but we know the estimates that we have given you are actually conservative ones. we see this as an opportunity to create a place that is truly u
'm going to use consistent divisions between the information so we can continue to be consistent about the report on all things that happened in the office. so firstly, the alcohol mitigation fee. hopefully you all have a -- amending the administrative code to impose a fee on alcoholic beverage wholesalers and persons to distribute or sell alcoholic beverages in san francisco, and in order to recover a portion of the health cost and administration costs for spending chronic ineastbound arenas through the sobering center. that legislation was not presented to this commission for comment, but was presented to the small business commission. it went to budget committee on august 4 and was amended after a great deal of public testimony. many of our permities did show up to speak on that item. it was heard again in a special meeting yesterday in the same committee on august 9, with further public testimony and moved to the full board without recommendation, for consideration after the recess. the small business commission continues to take a position of op significance to that fee, and this
are here to wake up the u.s. senate. we are here to wake them up because if they do not do their jobs you will not have a job, and that is why we need your help and your support and your voice. and we need it loudly and clearly. let me just conclude by thanking each and every one of you. we are going to hear from business leaders that have stepped up to the plate. you are going to hear from some of your friends and colleagues that have actually gotten a chance to give jobs. i am going to ask you, "do not leave. i need you." it infuriates me. the right all these stories that talk about it all the time, but there is not one camera here. that is wrong. i appreciate the crown and the examiner here. i want all of you on the steps. i hope the steps can hold us. we are going to do a family photo. we are going to send it all over the country. no other city has done this. we are going to send it to harry reid. we are going to send it to president obama. we are going to send it back east to congress. so you are not allowed to leave until we do this. but in the interim we are going to hear from peop
done or what can be done to help us deal with this problem. beverly? we need to make sure parents are aware that this is really an issue and a concern for their youth and that we have community groups in schools and different organizations bring that up. because i think parents, it's kind of under their radar. they're looking for illicit drugs; they're kind of thinking about that and watching for their children, but they're not paying attention to the packages of cough syrup coming into the house or the different things they might find around or maybe different shopping expeditions that their children are taking to the drugstores. and they can work with their local community pharmacies, too, to sort of increase that awareness and make people more aware that this is a prevalent issue and it is a problem, and i think its getting on parents' radar will help a great deal in that respect. we want to keep parents aware that just because, again, it's on the aisle doesn't mean that if it's misused, it's safe. for instance, between 1999 and 2004, there's a sevenfold increase in overdose du
condition is the u.s. long range strike system -- what is the condition of that system? >> to tell you the truth, the top of our report is about sustaining our strategic advantage in long range strike for the next 30 years. the fact of the matter is we have some aging systems that are increasingly less capable against the kinds of defenses that we see our military competitors developing. >> for example? >> for example, we have about 162 bombers, about 140 of those are what we call combat coded, able to go to war. of those, only about 12 or 13 of our b-2's are ready at any given oint to penetrate air defenses. those b-2's plus handful of cruise missiles and standsoff weapons constitute what this nation has for striking deep into adversary countries -- that are fielding some pretty advanced integrated air defense systems. >> most of our fascination is with short range systems, obviously joint strike fighter is the leading program the military will be buying to revitalize the tack tactical air forces. what forces will the future need for the future? >> we think csba has a number of people
that this is what i'm supposed to do. >> that's it for us tonight. i'm don lemon at the headquarters. see you at 6:00 ad 10:00 p.m. we leave you with the familiar tribute in light, now synonymous with ground zero symbolizing the fallen on that day. good night >>> nine years ago in the aftermath of 9/1 the united states had one sworn enemy. fast forward to 2010. >> we are commanded to terrorize the disbelievers. >> commanded to terrorize? >> it's clearly in the arabic language. this means terrorize them. >> a decade later, jihad against the west is more of a threat now than ever. his words have taken root in a new generation of radicalng muslims embracing everything he represits. >> i love osama bin laden. i love him li i can't begin to tell you. >> are go evening. we welcome viewers in the u.s. and around the world. for the next hour we take you from new york toem en and the hills of jamaica to mes the new jihadists determine to carry on in bin laden's name. the newcomers are undeterred as they call for the destruction of everything that doesn't conform to their radical view of islam. at the top o
in the u.s. and around the world. for the next hour we're going to take you from new york to yemen, even to the hills of jamaica to meet some of the new jihadists determined to carry on in bin laden's name. moderate muslims may denoue and disavow them but these newcomers are undeterred as they oply call for the destruction of everything that doesn't conform to their radical view of islam. at the top of their list, the very country that gives them the freedom of speech, to spew their hatred, theth ited states. with us for the entire hour, two of cnn's experts on terrorism who tracked this closely, national security contributor fran townsend and seniorco international correspondent nic robertson. stand by. at this moment perhaps no one is of greater concern to the u.s. e han ayad allawi, a u.s. citizen deemed so dangerous his own country is trying to kill him. the american-born allawi is one of the top recruiters. why the u.s. says he is the heir to osama bin laden. >> reporter: anwar al allawi, the radical yemen-based preacher seen here online. his followers in britain says he is lik osam
pausing to reflect with the nations of september 11th and thanks for staying with us. the president smoke spoke in arlington where officials and family members came together to honor the lives lost and to celebrate the memories living on and jennifer davis has more. >> reporter: in the shadow of the pentagon, under bright and sunny skies, they joined 200 families to remember a day 9 years ago from the world as we knew it was forever changed. >> on a day like, this the calm september morning was shattered by the worst act of terrorism in the nation's history. >> reporter: the president laid a wreath in memory. he didn't mention the controversies swirling around the plan or the florida pastor who had planned to burn the q'uran, he did appeal to the nation to honor the memory of those killed on september 11th by valuing diversity and tolerance. >> we are not and never will be at war with islam and that was not a religion that attacked us, it was al qaeda. >> reporter: they search for the bench inscribed with the name of the loved one and that is where the personal and private remembrances ta
helps to make us safer. >> whenever there's a loud noise, i've always been one of those people that runs towards the noise, versus away. that's one of the reasons i became a volunteer firefighter. >> erika: scott koen vividly remembers the events of 9/11. the planes that crashed in washington dc, pennsylvania and new york city. scott wanted to do something special to honor those caught up in the terrorist attacks. and so i developed a project called freedom plaza, which was to use the materials from the world trade center, and make a large north american bald eagle out of it, and it's on the size and scale of the statue of liberty. scott designed the memorial to stand where the world trade center towers had fallen. but the city of new york was already developing other plans for the site, and scott's memorial was not destined to be a part of them. then, late one night, he came up with another, even more ambitious idea. >> well, if we're going to use the steel and the aluminum in an eagle we could use some of the steel in a ship. >> erika: scott was familiar with navy ships. for years he h
did not break us. i'm maureen umeh. today, the nation paused to reflect on that fateful day and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice 9 years later, much has change. twin light beams stand where the world trade center powers once stood. a live look at the new york city skyline and earlier at the pentagon, president obama laid a wreath at the memorial where american airlines flight 77 crashed. the crowd honored the 184 victims who died. the president we -- terrorist efforts to divide the country, a victory he said will never be handed to them. >> we won't let the acts of some small band of murderers who slaughter the innocent and cower in caves distort who we are. they doubted our will but as americans, we persevere. >> among the dignitaries were the families of those who died, including the family of carolyn manlin. she was working inside the pope 9 year ago and today her family invited matt ackland to a celebration of her life. >> reporter: this is what caroline loved. her family in one place. >> she loved to keep the family together no matter what is going on. >> re
, there is a bogyman around washington. european style socialism, and it is coming to get us. there are a lot of people who say you want european-style socialism, which causes me to wonder and tremble -- it is it going to be like england? germany? france? the most insidious thing is to build europe's government system and to some big threat to the united states. 27 nations in the european union alone is like any other part of the world. some things are better than others, some work better than others. some things are a threat to the way we do things here if we were to adopt them, and there is not much chance of that. they would feel the way we do things a threat to the way they do things. the differences -- rather than being in a bunker worrying about the dreadful socialism coming across the atlantic, we should really just look and see what works better and incorporate it. we always have done, even the language we speak here, coming from over there. actually, two languages spoken here come from over there. let's take a look at other countries, let's see what works, and improve them if necessary. we do
